Count Chocula Beer? It’s a Real Thing
Out in Colorado kids were having trouble finding Count Chocula Cereal. Turns out, one of the local brewers bought it all up to brew some beer called Cerealiously Count Chocula. I am not making this up. Click here for the full story.
Previously, the brewery had used Golden Grahams, Reese’s Puffs, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch to produce specialty beers, and they are also planning a Cap’n Crunch brew and a Lucky Charms variety for St. Patrick’s Day.
For the first time in a while, General Mills made the entire line available for Halloween. The Count, Franken-Berry and that STONED LOOKING Boo Berry.
The cereals offered "stool coloring" for a while. In February 1972, Franken-Berry cereal included dye that turned some children's feces pink due to an inability to break down the heavily-dyed breakfast food, a symptom sometimes referred to as "Franken-Berry Stool."
Do you remember the cereals that failed? Fruit Brute and Fruity Yummy Mummy? You can't get those this year like you could last year.
Here are some classic commercials for the MONSTERS! Here is Boo Berry's first commercial. Go figure, he showed up stoned for it.
Franken-Berry has NEVER been a favorite of mine.
Count Chocula was always my favorite.
What false advertising! Did you see the amount of marshmallows in that bowl? They never put that many in the entire box!
The cereals don't taste the same to me, yet I buy a box for the nostalgia every year. Boo Berry will still turn your stool green. If you work around a bunch of Wolverines, it may be the bathroom prank just for you. Eat some Boo Berry and leave your green stool on display for the rest of the Wolverines to appreciate. Just a thought. Go Green!
